Om boka

The course manual aims to equip young people and adults with intellectual disabilities, autism or mental health difficulties with the personal and social skills to transition from childhood to adulthood and live successfully in the community. These skills include relating appropriately to different people, being as responsible and independent as possible, making decisions in an assertive manner, asking for help, coping with feelings and difficult situations, and building self-esteem. The PSHE course consists of 6 modules covering 30 sessions, ideal for a weekly session throughout a school or college year and can be linked to national accreditations and inspection. The course content can also be used with individuals. The manual includes a group leader's guide and participants' material. Each 1 1/2 hour session includes ideas for a range of engaging activities and can be run by a wide range of staff supporting people with SEND in educational, community and secure settings.

Sue Sutton is a trained teacher with a lifetime of working with children and adults with special educational needs and behavioural issues in a variety of settings. She has taught personal and social skills to adults and children, including men with learning disabilities detained for their offending behaviour in medium secure units. Her courses have complemented medical and psychological interventions in helping them move on as quickly as possible into low security or community settings. She has written and given talks about the value of education in helping people with intellectual disabilities, autism and behavioural issues to live successfully in the community, and in particular, to make the transition from childhood to adulthood and from school and college to adult life. She has piloted and run a course for college SEND teachers and has created and piloted the course contained in this new publication. She remains passionate about empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to live fulfilling lives and to equip those who live and work with them with skills to support them.
